I have incredibly bad luck with doctors. When I let my guard down and trust them things begin to go arwy. Based on my one and only visit so far Dr. Tewes addressed my problem head on. He made necessary referrals & scheduled a follow up visit. Due to past experiences. l'm optimistically cautious but I took a leap of faith & changed him to my primary care physician. He did more for me in one visit than several visits to previous doctors. I'm hoping for the best.

Dr. Tewes takes plenty of time to answer questions and makes completely sure you know what will happen next and what to expect from the clinic staff. Very thoughtful, courteous, and knowledgeable!

Do NOT go here. Nobody cares about the patient. Only money. The doc is never available and the "nurses" are incompetent. You are just a number, to be pushed through the system as fast as possible.

At age 59, I've had many primary care physicians and think Dr. Tewes is the best I've had. Willing to explain things in simple English and overall great bedside manner. While I'm not qualified to assess medical skill, I research what he has told me and it seems to be spot on. I highly recommend Dr. Tewes.
